Jane along with her husband Peter and their two sons moved to the Isle of Lewis in the year 2000 and soon afterwards embarked on their ‘Back to Back’ project. The project seeks to forge a viable crofting lifestyle drawing on traditional crofting values whilst encompassing a modern approach. Crofting is based on low impact sustainable farming and land management. Both active crofters Jane and Peter’s croft supports a productive fruit and vegetable garden, rare breed Shetland cattle, a flock of Hebridean sheep, pigs and poultry.
